Are many of your bedrooms, bathrooms and linen closets on floors above your laundry room? Carrying laundry in heavy baskets down multiple flights of stairs several times a week can really hurt your back, not to mention get to be a drag. Thanks to some ingenious and creative minds, a solution has been found. One of the greatest ways to simplify your life and maintain great back health is through laundry chutes. This has become a trend in some newer homes and for good reason. They take up little space and bring laundry directly to the cleaning site. What’s not to love?
Whether there is extra space at the bottom of a closet, somewhere on a wall or a small section of your bedroom floor, chutes can fit anywhere and be as large as you want. You can even hide them within cabinetry or along a walkway. All you need to do is make sure that the chute leads to your laundry room! To keep things organized, you can even have a separate chute for each bedroom that leads to a different basket within your laundry room that way everyone’s laundry is separated. (A no more “he took my shirt!” from your kids.) Some have open endings that lead right to a basket, like mentioned before… while others can be hidden and lead to the inside of a closet, cabinet or other area.
